"I went to Noma and interviewed Rene (Redzepi). We were talking about art and food but the restaurant was closed. Everybody asked me how was the food, what did you eat - and he basically gave me some marmite. The best marmite I've ever had." - David Shrigley

"This is not a coffee table book....notions of 'taste' get a grilling, while there are some fruity artist interviews....that make for entertaining accompaniments." - Melanie Gerlis, The Financial Times
